The Emir of Daura, Dr Farouq Umar, on Thursday evening returned to Daura, Katsina State, after spending almost a month outside the town battling undisclosed illness.
The monarch was rushed from Daura to the Federal Medical Centre, Katsina on May 4.
He was discharged from the medical centre about two weeks ago. The monarch however spent another week in Katsina, resting.
The emir, in an interview shortly after his discharge from the medical centre, implored people to support current efforts by both the federal and the Katsina State governments to curb the spread of COVID-19 in the state.
“I want to draw the attention of the people world over that the current pandemic is not a joke hence people should fear God and return to God (sic).
“If the world is not settled, people should not expect anything good even if you are physically healthy.
“Therefore, he who wants to enjoy himself in Katsina State should be loyal to the Federal Government,” he had said.
The emir’s spokesman, Usman Ibrahim, confirmed the return of the royal father to Daura on Thursday.
Ibrahim said, “Yes, the royal father returned to Daura yesterday (Thursday) evening. We thank Almighty Allah for that.”
